Week 10 - Stuart Conran: Sculpting.


Life-cast/sculpting progression



The silicone life-cast mould is then filled with plaster, using a 50/50 mix of fine casting plaster (which is excellent for picking up detail and fast setting time) and Crystical R (which is a harder mix, thus takes longer to go ‘off’.) When the plaster is set, the positive life-cast is removed. Eyebrows, eyelashes and other imperfections are reduced or removed with sandpaper and sculpting tools. A hairline is etched in. The life-cast is painted with plasticine coloured paint.


Once the paint has dried, two layers of dental separator is applied before sculpting can begin (this allows the plasticine to be ‘floated off’ at a later stage).
